About Us

True Light is the podcast of the Sheptytsky Institute of Eastern Christian Studies in the University of Toronto. It is meant to help Christians deepen their faith by exploring the spiritual treasures of the Churches of the East as a form of adult catechesis. Following the seasonal influence of the liturgical calendar, and using as an informal syllabus the Catechism of the Ukrainian Greco-Catholic Church, we will delve into topics such as prayer, holy mysteries, icons, as well as social justice and morality -- seeking to shed new light on our Faith in the Incarnate Christ!

Exploring Our Liturgical Roots to Revive Today's Church

Encountering the Word - in Holy Scripture, in Holy Mysteries, with the Church

In this episode, we hear from Fr Matthew Francis, OCA pastor of Holy Apostles Mission Station in Chilliwack BC and member of the Canadian Bible Society enthusiastically shares his love of Holy Scripture - the very Word of God, who is revealed to us in Jesus Christ. Like the Ethiopian eunuch and the disciples of Emmaus before us, he encourages us to thirst for this knowledge of God brought to us by Scripture and for which we need the Church to guide us.

The Holy Mysteries of Service: Eastern Tradition of Married Priesthood

Co-hosts Lara and Landon Coleman interview Dr. Adam DeVille, associate professor and chairman of the Department of Theology-Philosophy, University of Saint Francis (and graduate of the Sheptytsky Institute) on the topic of Married priesthood. Drawing from his soon-to-be-released book, Dr. DeVille highlights the rich tradition of the Eastern Churches on this issue and offers precious insight that could inform the intense debate that our sister Latin Church is currently engaged in.

The Calling of the Priest's Wife

Landon Coleman is joined by his new co-host and wife Lara, who interviews wives of three priests whose ministry spreads across much of the country. Pany Olenka Galadza, Annette Hrywna and Kim Bombak are at various stages of their lives and vocations. They offer a beautiful testimony of the countless ways in which their respective gifts are transformed into a service for the whole Church -- in an often discreet but tremendously edifying way.

More on Mission: a Visit to Richmond BC

Landon Coleman is joined by Fr Richard Soo, SJ - missionary pastor of an Eastern Catholic parish in Richmond BC. Fr Richard Soo's Byzantine Parish is an wonderful example of the UGCC living up to its missionary calling, concretely echoing the words of Patriarch Sviatoslav: "(ours) is a Church that comes from the Ukrainian people, but it is a Church that is for the entire human race!"

Evangelization

In this second episode of this new season, Landon Coleman is joined by Rev. Alexander Wroblicky fromthe Archeparchy of Pittsburg. In this episode we are challenged to explore evangelization -- the Great Commission -- and while doing so, to go back to basics. Do we Catholics not often behave like a people with a Religion in search of Faith? Might we not frequently go through motions with our heart and soul far from the words of Scripture and Liturgy? What do you plan to do with the pearl of Great Price?
